Floral Design class update

This past week in floral design class, we created an asymmetrical arrangement using carnations, daisies, larkspur, statice, ming fern and myrtle. It was supposed to be a slight "L" shape and although I thought my arrangement was looking like it was supposed to, I look at the photos and it doesn't really look asymmetrical to me. It may be because I took these photos a few days after I made the arrangement and some of the flowers actually changed their facing direction.
Either way, I really enjoyed this week in floral class! I feel like I'm beginning to be more comfortable with placing flowers in floral foam and using up its surface area wisely. I loved working with the different textures and colors of the flowers and foliage as well! They really welcomed the first day of Spring (which is the day we created this design).
When I was done, I gave this arrangement to my mother in law to celebrate her "birth week." She had a few different events throughout the week for her birthday so the day we went roller skating, I surprised her with this. :)

How have you welcomed Spring? 


  1. Love the colors and the arrangement looks good. Try arranging in front of a mirror. It will help you keep your form and balance.

  2. beautiful! i'd love to go to a class to learn how to do flower arranging too.
